our children's facilities

Of course, at Van der Valk Hotel Groningen - Zuidbroek, we also think of our youngest visitors and do everything we can to keep the children entertained. Especially for the youngest visitors to our restaurant, we have set up a children's corner full of fun toys and games. And that's not all. Also in the restaurant, children can have fun with the ever-popular Timo Toekan colouring page and the tastiest dishes from all over the world. There is also a separate children's toilet as well as changing facilities for the little ones.

At Restaurant de Valkenier, children can enjoy dishes from all over the world. Timo Toekan likes to introduce the children to dishes eaten in other countries such as:  America, Argentina or Indonesia. With each dish, Timo also tells a fun story or fact about the countries.

Play corner "The House of Timo Toekan"

The play corner (The house of Timo Toekan) is full of fun activities, toys and play equipment. What child doesn't like that?

The advantage of our adventure play corner is that it is in a separate room right next to the restaurant. So parents can enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner undisturbed while the children make friends in the play corner.

Van der Valk & KidsRights

Because Van der Valk, as a family business, also wants to do something for children who are less fortunate, we support the organisation KidsRights. This organisation stands up for the position of vulnerable children all over the world. With our children's menu, we specifically support the KidsRights Changemakers Movement. The KidsRights Changemakers Movement is a worldwide online platform especially for the brave children and young people who take action for children's rights; the changemakers. On this platform, these young changemakers can find, support, inspire and mobilise each other, as well as be followed by others, receive (financial) support and create a growing support base. Read more about all the changemakers here. With the World Eaters menu, Van der Valk supports the changemakers within the KidsRights Movement, recognising the power of children in the realisation, promotion and implementation of children's rights.

So dining out with the kids is not only adventurous, but you also support the KidsRights Changemakers!

Spacious family suites

After a fun day with the whole family, our spacious family suites are the ideal place to unwind and recharge for the next day. During a night or weekend away with the whole family, it is of course nice to end the day and wake up together. That is why we have special family suites. The suites are specially designed for a stay with (small) children and are fully equipped. The family suites have a walk-in rain shower and a double bathtub. So the children can splash around in the bath before going to sleep.

For the parents, the family suite has a spacious bedroom with king-size bed and separate sitting area, while the children sleep comfortably in bunk beds.  The next day, the children start the day together with a children's film on the television while the parents enjoy a hot cup of coffee or a good book in the comfortable armchair. Good morning! Please note, the suites open August 2023.
